Dental Veneers or Lumineers

Posted on: May 27, 2016


If you are considering whether to improve your smile with dental veneers or Lumineers, we encourage you to visit our 78745 cosmetic dentist office. By calling (512) 808-5651, you can schedule a consultation where we will examine you, discuss how we can improve your smile, and determine the best solution for doing so. At Austin Primary Dental, we can use both solutions to create a beautiful smile that you will enjoy showing off.

How a Veneers Dentist Can Help You?

As an Austin, TX cosmetic dentist, we can use both Lumineers and veneers to correct a variety of aesthetic challenges with your smile. Our Austin patients appreciate that regardless of which solution we suggest, we can improve smiles and transform them in a way that looks equally beautiful and natural. This is important because you want your smile to appear as though it has always been naturally beautiful, rather than something enhanced cosmetically. By ensuring that the exact shape and size of your restorations, along with their shading, is precise, we can ensure that when you smile, no one will be able to tell that you ever had cosmetic work done — only that your smile looks completely fabulous.

We can use dental veneers and Lumineers to do the following:

#1 – Close gaps in between your teeth. When it comes to your smile, there are few things as unsightly as a gap in between your front or side teeth. Most people look to orthodontics to address this issue. However, as a veneers dentist, we have found that many of our Austin patients are looking for a faster solution. In this case, we can put Lumineers or veneers on the surface of your teeth and use them to close gaps in a matter of weeks, rather than months or even a year or longer. For this reason, adults tend to prefer visiting an Austin, TX cosmetic dentist.

#2 – Make your teeth appear straight. As a cosmetic dentist, we can make your crooked teeth appear to be straighter without technically changing their position. At Austin Primary Dental, we can do so by placing dental veneers on the surface of your teeth and positioning them just so in order to address minor instances of malocclusion.

#3 – Cover dark stains. It is normal for teeth to become stained or yellowed over time. If you are an avid coffee drinker, tend to enjoy a glass of Merlot with dinner, or use a great amount of soy sauce with your sushi, there is a good chance your teeth are looking severely stained. Unfortunately, while this is very common, it is also a sign of aging. You can whiten your teeth and remove stains during the teeth whitening process. However, if you need additional assistance, we can place Lumineers or veneers on the surface of your teeth in order to cover dark stains and give you a brilliantly white smile.

Dental Veneers vs. Lumineers

As an Austin cosmetic dentist, the biggest difference we see between dental veneers and Lumineers is not in what they can accomplish but in the actual solution. Dental veneers are thicker than Lumineers, which means your enamel will need to be removed before the dental veneers can be bonded to the surface of your teeth. Lumineers, on the other hand, are as thin as a contact lens, so it is highly unlikely that we will need to remove any of your enamel. This means the process of placing Lumineers tends to be far more comfortable and convenient than getting veneers.

However, if teeth are also damaged, dental veneers may be the best solution. To find out which option will work best for you, call (512) 808-5651 and schedule an appointment with our Austin cosmetic dentist office.
